You knew Squirrel-Hair would waste no time going all protectionist on Ford

Yeah, a 35 percent tariff. That will bring down the price of the car and keep Ford jobs in post-America:

Today Ford announced that it is moving all of it’s small car production to Mexico and Trump doesn’t like it one bit.
Here’s the announcement by Ford:
DETROIT FREE PRESS – Ford plans to eventually shift all North American small-car production from the U.S. to Mexico, CEO Mark Fields told investors Tuesday, even though the company’s production investments in Mexico have become a lightning rod for controversy in the presidential election.
“Over the next two to three years, we will have migrated all of our small-car production to Mexico and out of the United States,” Fields said at a daylong investor conference in Dearborn.

Squirrel-Hair "can't believe their brazenness."

Why the hell do you think they are doing it, you economic genius?

I know Trump has said this before, but the fact that he’s declaring it again on the day Ford announces they are moving small car production to Mexico is troubling. He just doesn’t get it.
Companies move jobs to other countries because doing business here is too expensive. What he should be saying is that he will work hard to make America more competitive with other countries so that companies like Ford can move their operations back.
But no, just like an angry dictator, Trump wants to punish them for doing something he doesn’t agree with.

UPDATE: Trump just called Ford a ‘disgrace’ for making the move and said it’s also disgraceful that politicians allow companies like Ford to get away with it! 

Memo to Stephen Moore and Larry Kudlow: You're wasting your time trying to advise this clown.


  1. Where are people to turn for their daily bread here, man? This benefits the stockholders (who do nothing but sit and rake in dividends) and the corporate big shots and, guess who, the people of Mexico, where we want to send all our illegals back to work in. I know it's a great move in theory, but in reality, fuck em!!!

  2. Who else is there to benefit besides those who own the enterprise? They are the reason it exists at all.

  3. Yep, and that is why the robots are coming even faster. Head for the hills owners, gate yourselves....
